PechaKucha | City of Big Data

PechaKucha Night Chicago partners with the Chicago Architecture Foundation to bring you our first special event of 2014.

‘Big Data’ refers to the volume, velocity, and variety of the digital information we generate today. From information collected by urban sensors to Tweets, never before have cities generated so much data. Data is a 21st century design material. It has the power to transform how we plan, design, and build cities. Good data can help designers and citizens identify patterns and trends that affect the health and happiness of a city and the people who live there.
